Red Rocket is an adorable dachshund who was hit by a car, lost his left front leg, and was abandoned by his owner. He was taken to Heartland Animal Hospital where the hospital staff ministered to his needs with the help of monies from the Magnum Fund. PALS Animal Rescue was charged with screening prospective adoptive families and we applied to welcome him into our home. He's ours now and we're blogging to share his continued adventures!

Just when I think he might be settling down into a calm and contented middle age Red Rocket reminds me that his streak of puppy mischief will never die. Thankfully, this time his antics did not involve the consumption of chocolate and a race to the veterinary emergency hospital. But I must confess, on the scale of unpleasant nasal experiences chocolate dog puke ranks lower than deer excrement... Here is His Majesty, on the last night of his Texas Spring Break vacation, participating in the canine version of a wet T-shirt contest after sneaking away from the family campfire and rolling in deer poop.
